Who Would Do That?
Dear Mom and Dad,
How are you doing? I am doing good. I had a early day today, since Nana had to take a quick trip to the bank today….
Yea, how weird is that? Nana says, when she was little she was this tiny little pixie-esque girl, that usually didn’t have many friends. When she got a little bigger, still, not much in the way of being Little Miss Popular nor did she have a princess personality… (like me) she was never first and most often last to be picked on any team for any sport because let’s just say athletics NOT A STRONG SUIT. She was never one for the guys to want to take out, or girls didn’t wish they were like her… and now… she is old, sassy and has cheeks the size of China. We won’t specify which cheeks, since either set would be applicable. BUT TODAY… IT SEEMS SOMEONE WANTS TO BE NANA… or at least has stolen her identity at the bank! Yes, it seems Nana has been out to Maryland, and Delaware without telling any of us, and all while being here in Michigan with me! How crazy is that! Some days, Nana is just freakin’ right out… because she can’t even imagine someone doing stuff they do. It seems that someone has decided to shop a bit on Nana and Poppy… and we had to go to the bank first thing in the morning to stop all the credit card charges, and file papers. The people at the bank…. well, they loved me. They were nice to Nana… and helped her get a new card. (that she is now afraid to use). Poppy and Nana feel bad… the persons’ responsible are not too lucky in who they chose… since Nana and Poppy haven’t much of anything to take and owe more than they should to begin with. Also bad news for them, is that I don’t think they could have picked a more cranky old fat lady than Nana… with all the steroid medicine she is on, who knows what gasket she’ll blow! Maryland/Delaware may not have a hiding place sufficient for them.
Once we finished the preliminary garbage these people have created for Nana, we learned we may have to make a police report, but are waiting to hear from the officials. So we went back to camp, where we did what anyone would do to cool off… we sang 🙁 and sang 🙁 and sang some more.
Here I am singing with Nana!
Yea… we had a ball taking our mind off her worries…. singing 🙁 and dancing :-)….. This toy has a mirror and I can see myself in it…so you know what that means….
It means…. kiss the baby!
So we spent time unwinding from the day, and posting these adorable photos to take ‘our’ (Nana’s)mind off the crazy stuff that makes her sad. I get pretty involved and focused when it is play time… and all my thoughts go to what ever I am exploring or doing. Can you tell?
My face alone can cheer up anyone though… and I did a good job today. I also have something new to show you. I got my first tooth brush and hair brush yesterday. But one small problem… I think I have it backwards..
Yep, I know…
Hair brush…. is for hair…
but… hmmmm…. it feels really good on the gums!
I had a fun time entertaining Nana today, and just when you least expect it, things happen… Nana and I were hangin’ out and Great Grandma Sally called to say hi… and in the course of their conversation… she told her about her day, and her friend who we can call ‘Charlie’. Charlie lost her hand in an accident many years ago. Yet the reason she was in Great Grandma’s day, is that she was at quilting class with Great Grandma Sally. Yep Ms. Charlie sews and even knits with one hand. No two ways about it… you just do what has to get done, and you don’t let anything get in the way… THAT IS HOW IT IS WITH Nana and her mom, just at the right time, when Nana needed a dose of reality to stop her from feeling sorry for herself… Great Grandma called. So we have moved on… and won’t let some one dishonest make us forget that we have to make the best of what ever comes our way….
Until tomorrow, dear Mom and Dad, know that I had a lesson today, in what really matters. Yes it is totally unfair that people can be dishonest… but old people keep telling me Life is Not Always Fair… it is though what we make it… and you and Daddy, are working hard at making mine so nice. I cannot wait to see you, and show you all the faces that I make, and share my ability to make you smile IN PERSON! I am today as always your Little Miss Adorable, your daughter,
